Other lectures and notes

One post looks at how we define economics. Another attempts to clarify the art/science distinction in economics.

Students are often confused about how microeconomics and macroeconomics differ. They have substantially different “look and feel” properties.

A recent lecture was on the basic difference between the Austrian School and the Keynesians.

A lecture on the IMF given in 2006 is still relevant.

Life in Dumaguete includes moderately heavy traffic because of the many motorized pedicabs. I lectured on this as an example of a tragedy of the commons.
